Discovering Ukelele

When I Bought a Ukelele

I bought a ukelele at Ukelele Puapua when my soon-to-be wife and I visited Oahu to research wedding venues. I bought a Kala ukelele to try out a new string instrument. I passably play the guitar and bass. When our first daughter came, I thought it wiser to play the ukelele for her than the guitar. She was curious and I thought she might hurt herself exploring the guitar. An acoustic guitar weighs about 5 pounds. A ukelele weighs about one pound.
